Supporting Charities


We are delighted to support various appropriate Charities throughout the School year.

We believe that this is an important part of the Children’s education & Christian ethos.

The contributions from our Children & their families are entirely voluntary.

Unfortunately we are unable to support all requests from charities & other good causes as we receive numerous each month, we may not be able to reply to requests.

Details of whole School charity support is given below-

December 2016

Santa’ s helpers have just contacted our School to say that an amazing £296.06 was the total collected during his grand tour of Heddon on Friday.

Therefore we will receive £150.00 towards providing extra support for our Children.

The remainder is going to the great causes that The Lions Club support,

Apart from the cash collected there was also a lot of smiling faces which was so great to see.
